Regenexx® Stem Cell Therapy & Platelet Procedure for Knee Arthritis, Meniscus Tears, Tendon & Ligament Tears, Overuse Injuries and Other Conditions.

Regenexx® Stem Cell & Platelet Rich Plasma Procedures are breakthrough, non-surgical stem-cell treatments for people suffering from knee pain due to common injuries to the knee meniscus, ACL or MCL, cartilage, or who are experiencing degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis.

Traditional options for patients suffering from these conditions include arthroscopic knee surgery to repair ligament tears, or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks. As an alternative, the Regenexx Same-Day procedure may help alleviate knee pain and the conditions that cause it with a simple office injection procedure.

Commonly Treated Knee Conditions

  • Arthritis
  • Meniscus Tears
  • ACL, MCL, PCL or LCL sprain or tear
  • Knee Instability
  • Patellofemoral Syndrome/Chondomalacia
  • Pes anersine bursitis
  • Baker’s cyst
  • Patellar tendonitis
  • Biceps Femoris Insertional Tendinopathy

Note: This is not a complete list, so please contact us or complete the Regenexx Candidate Form if you have questions about whether you or your condition can be treated with these non-surgical procedures.

Regenexx Procedure Safety Data

The information below applies to our safety data on stem cell procedures. Most elbow conditions are treated with platelet rich plasma, which is a far less complex treatment than our stem cell procedure, which requires a bone marrow draw as part of the process (and also includes a platelet rich plasma post-injection).

Your Alternative to Knee Surgery

Surgical options for those dealing with painful knee issues range from arthroscopic knee surgery to total knee joint replacement. Recent research has shown that some of the most popular arthroscopic surgeries have no benefit at all (including meniscus surgery). Knee replacement is extremely traumatic and carries new-found risks of toxic wear particles entering the blood stream. Surgical risks aside, all surgeries minimally require months of painful rehab to regain strength and mobility. Most surgeries also accelerate the cascade of degeneration that leads to osteoarthritis.

Surgery is sometimes the obvious solution for severe cases and we acknowledge that stem cells cannot treat everything. However, we have seen exciting results using stem cell therapy for knees. On difficult cases, such as complete muscle and ligament tears, and we have helped thousands of patients with severe arthritis avoid knee replacement and continue to do the things they love with little or no pain. Most Regenexx patients experience little or no downtime from their procedure and are encouraged to return to activity as they begin to feel better.

Common Knee Conditions

Osteoarthritis

Knee replacement surgery comes with many serious risks and complications, but is often considered to be a straightforward and accepted approach to treatment for those suffering from significant arthritis or injury in this joint. Before you consider knee replacement, learn what Regenexx can do for you and download our free report.

Meniscus Tears

Meniscus tears are one of the most common injuries we treat. The last option anyone should consider for treating a meniscus injury is the surgical removal of all or some of this important structure. Click below to learn why Regenexx is likely a better choice than meniscus surgery.

ACL Tears

Knee ACL tears are a very common injury. The rush to surgery has long been due to the traditional thinking that an ACL will not heal. Our experience treating ACL tears with the Regenexx patented stem cell treatment has shown that it may be a better option for those who have experienced a partial or complete non-retracted ACL tear.

      Before coming to Dr. Bashir, I had multiple injuries including, Knee Shoulder and Neck. Being based in the UK I researched various companies and Dr. Bashir proved to be the ideal fit for the treatment that I was looking for. From the very first call, Dr. Bashir gave me the confidence that he would be able to improve my injuries. His personal service is exemplary. On arrival to Miami, I was impressed by the welcoming atmosphere of the clinic. The treatment was as expected and I look forward to great results.

      Finding Ocyon and Dr. Bashir was truly a Godsend. After experiencing severe whiplash from a car accident 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with a herniated disc. My neck was always stiff and in pain plus I had frequent headaches. I just wanted to avoid surgery and get back to my regular life. Dr. Bashir spent alot of time with me going over my MRI and discussing treatment options. He also educated me on regenerative medicine and gave me a tour of his state of the art facility. The procedure he performed on me was the best thing that ever happened. I was in and out the same day and it was completely painless. Within 1 week my headaches went away and my neck started feeling normal again. After my 1 month follow up visit, he showed me how my hernia had almost completely reduced and there was no longer any pressure on my nerves. I cannot be anymore grateful for Dr. Bashir and all of his very friendly staff. Thank you!

      Dr. Bashir did a wonderful job when it came to my treatment. I came in with back issues and after having a treatment with Dr. Bashir I am now getting the relief that I needed. I am making great improvements and I am very impressed with the healing effect that my body has been able to achieve. Before meeting Dr. Bashir, my sleeping patterns were interrupted constantly and after my procedure, I am able to sleep all night without waking up in pain. I am very confident in the work Dr. Bashir preformed and have had great success with him. I am having improvements of up to 70%. The OCYON team is one of the best that I have encountered. They were very attentive and treated me like if I was part of their family.

      I was involved in two car accidents is 2017, rear ended twice, not my year to say the least! I had done everything to avoid the "knife", so to speak, as I did not want surgery to repair my 4 herniated discs in my neck and my 3 herniated discs in my mid-back as a result of my two car accidents. I tried everything; acupuncture, chiropractor (three different ones), 18 injections in my back with anti-inflamatory and pain medications, and neck decompression therapy. Although these made me fell better the effects lasted only days. I did not know what else to do besides submitting myself to surgery which, in my early 50's with diabetes, high blood pressure and asthmatic, I did not want to do at all costs. I started to my own research on-line and came across Dr. Bashir and his team of healthcare professional and the work he was doing with platelet replacement therapy. I have never heard of it until then. Intrigued and hopeful I went to see Dr. Bashir for a consultation and after a few minutes of consultation I knew platelet replacement therapy was the way to go! After two treatments, 30 days apart, I felt many times better than when I walked in. Now, 5 months later, I have avoided surgery, regained mobility and range of motion and live pain free. The work that Dr. Bashir and his team, especially Randy, physical therapist who broke me down and put me back together so that Dr. Bashir can practice his art of regenerative medicine, can not be understated. I can enjoy my life again thanks to their professionalism and work. Avoid surgery at all costs until you have met Dr. Bashir and his team!

      I have had chronic lower back pain and multiple shoulder surgeries over the last 20 years. Not wanting a shoulder replacement or back surgery at this time, I turned to Dr. Bashir for help. I told him about my situation and all the avenues of physical therapy and surgeries that did not yield the desired results. Dr Bashir was very professional and showed a kindness and concern that is not often displayed in the orthopedic field. I am still in the process of recovering, but the stem cell therapy has definitely given me hope that I will be back better than before and without the chronic pain. I am very happy with my choice to forego surgery and exercise all my options like regenerative medicine, and OCYON Regenerative and Dr. Bashir have my utmost confidence.James Quinn 01/16/2019
